Lately I've been thinking of four left wing incidents that happened in Maine over the course of two years. I feel I should get them off my chest I think some of them would be interesting and I think others should know about them.
The first one involves an incident that took place in the Bangor metro area two years ago. This freind of mine and his family were having trouble. He had difficulty getting by and he worked at Edwards Shop'n'save in Hampden outside Bangor. He was on food stamps and his wife was laid off and couldn't get a job. He got paid about 230$ for work but the Democrats in Augusta took 40$ out of his paycheck for taxes and withold and some other stuff I dont remember. He and a couple other employees were near the service counter and he talked about how taxes in Maine were too high (Maine has one of the highest tax burdens, largest governments and is 48th poorest state in the country.) at the time the tabor amendment was on the ballot and he discussed how he supported it. Well there was this woman at custormer service who was a democrat who overheard it and complained to the manager how offended she was by it. He called him into his office the next week and the next day he had no job. Can you believe it? This guy was making next to nothing, complaineed about how taxes were making it hard for a low income worker to get by how there weren't enough jobs and this liberal moonbat throws a fit at the manager and gets him fired. After that they almost went under but thanks to prayer and hard work he got a new Job in Waterville where he gets more money and gets to keep more of it. Reminds me about the poor Kulaks in Russia. They were poor and the communists wanted what little they had and if they protested they got killed. This poor worker loses his job all because he spoke out about how the Dems were fleecing him. FYI I told the manager that I was going to spend my money elsewhere. Its the Edwards Shop'n'save in Hampden Maine. Go shopping at Super Wal-mart in Brewer its better. Also Edwards buys products from Hannaford's which gives to leftwing causes so there's another reason.
The second incident happened six months ago last fall. Me and another guy were at Newport Maine holding a small support the troops rally. It was me him and one other guy. We were holding signs and american flags near the shopping center and bowling ally when these two moonbats showed up and began harassing us. They were college kids probably from Orono and they began yelling at us calling us Fascists and racists and telling us to get out. They left and came back 30 minutes later with two other moonbats who began to yell and argue and one said that America was a fascist capitalist nation that should be destroyed and another began shouting anti american slogans as well. Then they started trying to rip our signs and our flags away from us and even hitting us. We only pushed them away and then they began yelling that we were assaulting them and that they would call the police. Sure enough a cop drove by inquiring what was happening and one of the perps walked up and made accusations that we were assaulting them using bad language and other lies. I told the cop we were holding a small rally to support our boys in Iraq and that they were disrupting us and that we wanted to press charges. i showed them one of my signs that was damaged but instead he told us to leave. He said we were too close to private property and got complaints about us being disruptive. He told us to move and showed us a place away from traffic that we could protest. he did nothing about the moonbat liberals and refused to arrest them. Our rally was relocated where there weren't many vehicles passing by near a hardware store. there weren't that many people who saw us. About an hour later the one of the moonbats came back, called us all nazis and other names and told us to go back to nazi Germany. He threw rocks at us for awhile shouted obscenities, got tired and left. Sometime later the cop returned with this woman cop in two cruiser and told us that the rally was over and that we had to leave. He said we were being disruptive to the community and that there were complaints that we were being combative to pedestrians. (the moonbats no doubt.) and that we had to leave. I explained that we had a constitutional right to gather and rally behind our soldiers in Iraq and that we were the ones attacked. Instead the woman became beligerant and told us this protest was closed and that we had to leave or we would be charged with disturbing the peace and assault. We closed down since it was evening by now. I sometimes regret doing it.
the third incident took place a month ago in Bangor. At the bus depot in pickering square, homeless bums like to congregate, panhandle and make trouble. Sometimes I run into a few of them drinking and doing drugs, talking to themselves, another time they rob the vending machines. They're not allowed to loiter there but they do anyway and one night they snuck into the restrooms and camped there. Before leaving they smeared the walls of the restroom with feces. It reminded me of an episode of south park yet this really happened, they knew the six bums who did it but they did nothing. The restrooms are now closed and still are even now. I remember bringing it up with a woman working at the depot and complained about the homeless causing problems. I had this drunk old guy in my face telling me FU and go F yourself and stuff and he was wandering the depot harrasing everyone and muttering giberish. I complained several times to this woman there about the homeless problem over several days. One time I complained about this guy spiting at people going to the buses and she told me, "That's racist! These poor people have no place else to go! It's not their fault their poor! Have some compasion and respect. First of all, Maine has all these BIG programs, shelters, and handouts and entitlements and stuff, second, most dont want to work and would rather be homeless, third, for most it is their fault and it's the state of Maine's fauld because most jobs are taxed and regulated out of the state. Im like, "Excuse me but there are rules against loitering and they are being beligerant and disruptive." She didn't listen.
The fourth incident that happened involved a freind of mine who used to live here a year ago. He was working but had trouble making ends meet. His father who is this moonbat tried to force him to go on SSI. he had 8000$ in his bank account and his father who was abusive tried to force him to get rid of all of it to go on SSI. He said he was stupid, had no social skills and that he didn't know anything. The father BTW is a leftist who is pro-choice, pro-amnesty, supported the minimum wage hike and even supports leftwing groups like Amnesty international and Planned parent hood. Im not kidding! He tried to get this case worker to help him force him to spend down his money, the case worker took his side but he refused. He had to quit his job and leave because he couldn't take it anymore. He's in the midwest now in Kansas. He's doing much better than he did before.
Well that's it. I thought I'd just write about this since I had nothing else to do today and I've been thinking about it alot and wanted to get it off my chest. The moral of the story is that liberals are not as open minded as you may think. If you cant get it by now you got a problem.
